The Rough Guide to Scottish Music [1996]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
One of the very early entries in the Rough Guides series of CDs, the first Rough Guide to Scottish Music makes a fair stab at trying to collect the traditional and contemporary, the ancient and the new, and the revered and the blasphemous in Scottish music. The album opens with Wolfstone and some contemporary Scot rock, complete with bagpipes, fiddle, electric piano, and rock drum kit. Cathie Ann MacPhee provides an old Gaelic piece, and Capercaillie provides a brand new Gaelic piece to follow.

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
One of the very early entries in the Rough Guides series of CDs, the first Rough Guide to Scottish Music makes a fair stab at trying to collect the traditional and contemporary, the ancient and the new, and the revered and the blasphemous in Scottish music. The album opens with Wolfstone and some contemporary Scot rock, complete with bagpipes, fiddle, electric piano, and rock drum kit. Cathie Ann MacPhee provides an old Gaelic piece, and Capercaillie provides a brand new Gaelic piece to follow. Iron Horse turns in an instrumental piece of atmospheric music, and Talitha MacKenzie formerly of Mouth Music incorporates Tuvan throat singing, African drumming, and a club beat into a Gaelic song to stunning effect. After a short martial interlude, the Cast contributes a piece of what is essentially the Scottish end of the Celtic song style. The towering figure of Dick Gaughan is represented with a piece from his major Handful of Earth album, and the Tannahill Weavers toss in a nice piece on a number of fiddles. The Boys of the Lough provide another look at Scottish Celtic traditions, Heather Heywood continues the theme with her voice, and Tannas pumps the beat back up a bit with some call-and-response singing and drumming. Before the album is over, more representatives of the Scottish folk revival scene show up for a number, followed always by another fine example of the same. There's a decent amount of variety here to be heard, and though there's something of a mild lack in the field of the absolute newest developments in Scottish revivalism including some of the hardest-edged rock involving bagpipes since AC/DC, that's mostly addressed in the later second volume disc. This one's a fine introduction into contemporary Scottish music, keeping an eye on its influences from traditional forms.
